Application for Grant of a Premises Licence - Coachman Inn, Pickering Road West, Snainton, Scarborough, YO13 9PL pdf icon PDF 413 KB

To consider a report of the Environment and Regulation Manager (Reference 20/65) attached.  This report seeks the determination by the Licensing Sub-Committee of an application for the grant of a premises licence where one or more relevant representations has been received.



The Licensing Sub-Committee considered a report of the Licensing and Regulation Manager (Reference 20/65).  The Sub-Committee also had sight of Appendix A, the application, Appendix B and written representations.


The Applicant informed the Sub-Committee verbally that he is not allowed to have a marquee up as it is a conservation area. He therefore seeks to remove the application for a marquee. He agrees that no marquees, tents or other structures will be used in the outside garden and that a condition can be added. In addition he wishes to sell alcohol outside and take payment there but not have a bar outside. Appropriate conditions can be put in place.


The substance of the application has therefore changed greatly from that originally applied for.


In coming to its decision, the Sub-Committee has considered the application on its own merits and has also had due regard to the National Guidance issued under section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003 and Scarborough Borough Councils Licensing Policy.  The Sub-Committee has had due regard to the 4 licensing objectives namely:


-The prevention of crime and disorder

-Public Safety

-Prevention of public nuisance

-The protection of children from harm


After hearing the issues today, it is the licensing objectives of…


Public safety

Prevention of public nuisance.

Prevention of crime and disorder


… that are relevant and consideration has been given to these today
